What Should I Do If I Have Tinnitus?

Millions of people experience tinnitus. It is a common symptom of the hearing loss that occurs as we grow older. Tinnitus may be also be caused by sudden hearing loss from exposure to loud noise; a reaction to medication; or other medical conditions such as allergies, tumors or heart or circulatory problems.

If you’re experiencing tinnitus, call us and schedule a visit to see whether a hearing aid may help provide relief.

What Types of Tinnitus Management Are There?

Earwax Removal

You’d be surprised how often the sensation of ringing in the ears is caused by a buildup of earwax (cerumen) against the eardrum.

Hearing Aids

Hearing aids can enhance hearing and mask or cover up the tinnitus. For most patients with tinnitus, they can provide partial or complete relief.

Maskers

These small electronic devices, worn in the ear and similar to hearing aids, produce low level white noise that masks or covers up the tinnitus. Some can be individually programmed to mask the specific frequencies of the tinnitus you experience.

Medical Treatment

If our assessment indicates that medical issues other than hearing loss may be behind the tinnitus, we will refer you to a physician to complete the diagnosis and treat the underlying condition.

Alternative treatments

There is no evidence to support the effectiveness of alternative treatments such as acupuncture, homeopathy, or herbal remedies such as ginkgo biloba.
